POTD: G28 Designated Marksman Rifle with Schmidt & Bender

    Today’s Photo of the Day brings us to an almost exclusive Made In Germany experience, with the G28 DMR rifle (Designated Marksman Rifle) in use by the German Army.

    The rifle is a Heckler & Koch 417 with a Schmidt & Bender 3-20×50 DMR scope with calibrated single turn turret and DMR reticle.

    If you are curious about what the reticle looks like (like me), I found out for you to save you some time.

    The Schmidt & Bender 1-8×24 ShortDot DUAL CC has recently been awarded by the German Army.

    It will be mounted on the Heckler & Koch 417 DMR Patrol version.

    The top sight, a red dot T2 or H2, is an Aimpoint.

    PS It may look cool, but I strongly advice against using dark shades when sniping and operating.
